6:00pm-9:00pm | The Trailhead at Theodore Wirth Park


From the day we found out about Covid-19 to this moment, Pollen—our staff, our collaborators, our community—has been pouring our pain, trauma, hope, and joy into art and story.




We’ve been showing up and creating and surviving. We have all been Up-to-Something. And we deserve a space to celebrate, reflect back on the past two years, and gather in this new weird world. 

We’re not quite sure what an event even looks like at this point in time, but we do know that coming together, communing and connecting with others, is vital to us as people and as a community. The bar to get us into clean clothes and out of our homes has never been higher. But we do believe that seeing one another face to face, simply showing up and being together is worth the effort.

That’s why we’re hosting a gathering on Thursday, June 30, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM at The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park for all of our Pollenites.



Just like you, we have been up to a lot lately, navigating change and imagining what our next season of blooming could look like. We wanted to take this chance to share more about Pollen’s future. You are a part of this change and growth, so what better way to share in this journey with each other than in person.

We know it’s a big ask to come to an event right now, and we are right there with you. So we mean it when we say we want you to come as you are. Come in your sweatpants, come not knowing what to say, come with your anger or sadness or uncertainty. Reconnect with old friends, meet new ones, and practice being human with us. We want to know what you’ve been up to. We can’t promise it will be worth leaving the house, but we can promise good company.





Up-to-Something is co-hosted by these incredible Pollenites:

Alexandra Siclait, Allegra Lockstadt, Davis Senseman, Erinn Farrell, Felicia Perry, Hayley Matthews-Jones, Jamie Schumacher, Kevin Robinson, Liz Giel, Lolyann Conner, Lulete Mola, Meghan McInerny, Nausheena Hussain
